1938 Mercedes Benz 540K Cabriolet A

Concours Restoration just being completed.

This car was built & delivered new in Germany as a wedding present for the first owners daughter back in 1938.  The first owner was a prominent meat factory owner in Northern Germany.

After the war the car was bought by an american service man, from the original owner and exported to the USA. After that the car spent decades in a private museum in the USA.

It was eventually aquired by an austrian collector and repatriated back to Germany.

The total mileage of the car must be very low. When dismantling the car for restoration it was noted that all the matching numbered components; engine, gearbox and rear axle proved to have almost no wear whatsoever.

Being cosmetically patinated the then German owner made the decision to give it a full nut & bolt restoration back to better then new condition.

Every component Including chassis and bodywork has received a total nut and bolt restoration always maintaining the originality of the parts. The complete work is being done by a leading German specialist who very early on specialized in Mercedes- Benz Kompressor cars.

The technical restoration has taken several years. Currently the bodywork is about to be finished and the upholstery is being done. The choice of colour for the hood and the interior theoretically still may be chosen by the new owner.

We expect the car to be ready to go in February 2017 & plan to display it on our stand at Technoclassica Essen in 2017.
